Hello Everyone! I have a good friend who is putting together a health hackathon in Ann Arbor this month. I wanted to share the information with you. If interested, please sign up. It will be great! Information is below.
A hackathon is an intense, 48h rapid innovation event that brings together people from different educational and professional backgrounds to generate and prototype new solutions. This approach has been successfully applied to healthcare by organizations such as MITs Hacking Medicine ( Protected content ).
Ann Arbor Health Hacks ( Protected content ) is a new non-profit with the mission to organize healthcare hackathons to advance healthcare and foster the local healthcare startup community in Ann Arbor and SE Michigan.
This year's event will focus on disease prevention and will be held at Palmer Commons June Protected content . The event is free of charge but requires registration.
